Grupo Jovem Pan
The story of the Grupo Jovem Pan begins in 1944, with the inauguration of the Panamericana radio station, in São Paulo, by radio soap operas writers Julio Cosi and Oduvaldo Vianna, who planned to create a station focused on the dramaturgical genre. In that same year, however, the radio was sold to the enterpreneur, lawyer and sports manager Paulo Machado de Carvalho, owner of the Emissoras Unidas radio network, which also owned Record, São Paulo and Excelsior radio stations.
The businessman named his eldest son, Paulo Machado de Carvalho Filho, the station’s director. Carvalho Filho moved the programming towards sports, resonating his fathers other activities as vice-president and then president of the São Paulo Futebol Clube in the decades of 1930, 1940, and 1950 and head of the world champion soccer delegations in 1958 in Sweden and 1962 in |Chile.
Paulo Machado de Carvalho was also founder of TV Record, third TV broadcast channel in São Paulo, inaugurated in 1953, selling his stocks to Sílvio Santos in 1972. The family (Paulo and his three sons, Paulo Machado de Carvalho Filho, Alfredo Amaral de Carvalho e Antonio Augusto Amaral de Carvalho), commanded TV Record and Rádio Record until 1989, when their radio stations and TV channels were sold to the enterpreneur and bishop Edir Macedo, leader of the Igreja Universal do Reino de Deus (IURD). Radio Excelsior (currently CBN), on the other hand, was sold in 1953 to Organizações Victor Costa and, in 1966, to Organizações Globo. Radio São Paulo was sold to the Grupo Bandeirantes, which currently also belongs to Edir Macedo.
In 1966, the radio station, which had been rebranded as Jovem Pan since the previous year, started being run by Paulo Machado’s youngest son, Antonio Augusto Amaral de Carvalho, also known as Tuta, who brought numerous musical pop idols who had become famous in TV Record, also under his direction. In 1973, Tuta left TV Record and acquired stock control of Radio Jovem Pan, consolidating the station’s news programming. In 1976, the group acquired their first FM concession and founded Jovem Pan FM, a station directed at the younger audience. Jovem Pan FM has been run since the beginning by Antonio Augusto Amaral de Carvalho Filho, a.k.a. Tutinha. The management has thus remained within the family through hereditary transmission of public concessions which characterizes various media organizations in Brazil.
In 1993, the station initiated the Jovem Pan-SAT project, implemented in 1994, with digital audio signal and satellite transmission to various regions in the country. Thus the group consolidated their network of affiliates, which counts 84 stations (67 Jovem Pan FM and 17 Jovem Pan News). In october 1996, the station started the Jovem Pan Online portal. After selling TV Record, the group attempted developing other media businesses. In 1991, in a partnership with the Amaral de Carvalho family and businessman João Carlos Di Gênio (owner of the Universidade Paulista and Curso Objetivo schools), the group inaugurated TV Jovem Pan, 16 UHF TV channel in São Paulo, with a focus similar to the AM radio station, a programming focused on news and sports. The project, however, didn’t work out and in 1995 TV Jovem Pan became a sales channel, CBI (Canal Brasileiro de Informação). Today, the channel, retaining it’s sales profile, is called Mega TV and belongs to Grupo Mix de Comunicação, which, in turn, is owned by Grupo Objetivo.
